2014 Favourites!

2015 has begun, so what better way to start the year off than to reflect on all the fab things i have loved in 2014. It was actually quite difficult to pick everything out as i had a year's worth of items to choose from BUT i did it and here they are!



Divergent Movie - I went to watch this in the cinema in March and loved it, i liked the fact that it stayed quite close to the book and overall it is a great film that i have watched over and over and will continue to do so!

One Direction's album Four - I have been loving this album. It has a good mix of songs and their voices sound great. I am very excited to see them perform some of them this year when i go to their concert! *fangirl squeal*

Soap and Glory's Hand Food - This hand cream is really moisturising and has a really pleasant smell. I have been using this throughout the year, and i know i will carry on.

Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo - I have only brought this scent for the whole year as it smells SO good. This has been repurchased many times as i love having it just in case i might need it on a morning. It is a trusty old thing that will continue to be repurchased a lot, unless i decide to go crazy and try another scent (probably not though...)

Pantene Smooth & Sleek Shampoo - This was a late purchase in the year however it has made it just in time to be added to my favourites list. It leaves my hair feeling so soft but the best part is that it doesn't make my hair tangled, brushing my hair is a dream when i get out the shower.

The Maze Runner book - Well i read this in a day and a half... so that suggests it's good right?! Each chapter seems to end on a cliff hanger so i feel i have to keep on reading. The characters are likeable and it has a great storyline.

Zoella Blissful Mistful - My absolute favourite scent this year, it just smells really fresh and lovely.

Barry M's Cappuccino Nail Polish - A very easy to wear nail polish that is perfect for all occasions.

MAC's Pink Nouveau - This bold pink is fabulous and i have been loving wearing it all year round.

Bach's Rescue Remedy Spray - A random favourite but i felt the need to talk about it as it has really helped me. I have found this to really calm me down in stressful situations like my driving test and my exams. Maybe it's a placebo effect but i don't care, it made me feel better!

LUSH's Bubblegum Lip Scrub - Tastes good, looks good, smells good. And it works.

Jessica's Gingersnap Nail Polish - A gorgeous glittery bronze/gold colour that looked awesome throughout Autumn/Winter time.

OPI's Give Me Moor - Another stunning Autumn/Winter shade that i have been wearing non-stop.

Thanks for reading not just this post, but all my posts from 2014! I am very appreciative of all the time people have taken to read and comment on my posts. Here's to another year of blogging!

  2. Love your favourites especially hand food, dry shampoo and lush's bubblegum scrub. Some of mine are Lush's butterbear, bourjois's 1 seconde volume mascara & my Makeup Revolution's Romantic Smoked pallete. And I also can't wait for Insurgent to come out! Happy New Year!

  6. Are we the same person or...? Haha, no but seriously we like very similar things! Divergent was awesome, FOUR is amazing (so jealous you get to go to their concert!), I use Pantene as well, and Zoella is amazing. (-: But I've never heard of a remedy spray...what is it? o; Can't wait to see what you have in store for 2015!

    Lots of Love,

  25. Although I have never read the book, I enjoyed watching the Divergent the film. It has a nice plot. I was excited to watch the Maze Runner but the movie wasn't that good to me. :/

  26. I was pleasantly surprised at 1D's album and the Lush Lip Scrub has been one of my favourites of 2014 too! My lips used to be quite dry and since using that they're so much softer now!

  27. A great compilation of favourites for the year that's now behind us. It also gives me a list of things to try. I never use dry shampoo but this product has been super popular and maybe I'll give it a go. I'd also love to try Zoella's products, but as I am resident in the Republic of Ireland they aren;t available here. I am so happy to hear your thoughts on a lush lip balm also as I have been eager to try them too. :)
